Kitty Kapers

Introducing Buttons…

…my second kitty. Buttons is a welfare kitten and about 4 months old. I got him yesterday after eventually making a decision some weeks ago to get a second kitty. He’s a silver tabby.

He’s constantly moving…hard to get pics of him!

Unfortunately, little Pebbles is jealous and has been hissing every time she sees him and has not liked the fact that his scent is on me. So Buttons is currently confined to the second bedroom while I try and spend time with both. He seems happy enough in his little space but I feel guilty. Anyway, it’s going to be a gradual process and I’m keeping my fingers crossed Pebbles accepts him. He seems okay with her. In fact, this morning he tried to rub his nose on hers when I went to his room to clean his litter. Like Pebbles, he’s a cutie too. But then, I’m biased.

Pebbles watching Buttons’ room…as if he might escape!

Will keep you updated with the progress. Or lack of it. I really hope she accepts him.

Any recommendations or shared experiences will be greatly appreciated!

Until next time,

      R is such a cutie! You should get a pet for her and that way get over the feeling of being terrified to keep pets! 😉

    Loved the name Buttons 🙂
    Never dealt with jealous cats though I have had a pet cat, they are fun to have around 🙂
    I hope they’ll mingle soon.

      Thanks My Era! They get jealous more so because they are territorial. Let’s just say I underestimated how territorial they would get!!!

    Here’s to a lot of sibling revelry at your home! Cheers!

    P.S: Buttons is really cute and I loved the name. Hubby is worried that if I see some more pics of your cats, I might just go ahead and get one for myself!

      Sigh…sibling rivalry is more like it at the moment. Or territorial rivalry! Hehe…if you do get cats, would love to see pics of them!
